LeBron James has always been compared to Michael Jordan on the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) issue. However, NBA legend Robert Horry thinks that James does not need to win another title to secure the GOAT status and surpass Michael Jordan, reported by CavsNation.

LeBron, in the 2017 NBA Finals, proved himself as one of the best players in the world. Falling short was not easy for LeBron. He put up spectacular numbers in the Finals, averaging a triple-double with 33.6 points, 10 assists, and 12 rebounds while shooting 56% from the field. These numbers made him the first NBA player to average a triple-double in the Finals.

NBA Finals 2017

In 2017 NBA finals, it may seem that the Cavaliers were more of the underdog compared to the Warriors.

The addition of Kevin Durant to the Warriors made the difference, a very talented person added to the greatest collection of talents the current Golden State Warriors. Also with a deep bench for the Warriors, they're quite of a formidable team in the NBA.

The loss to the Golden State Warriors caused James a 3-5 Finals record making all of James’ critiques to not consider James in the GOAT category in comparison to Jordan. Despite the efforts James did that no player had ever done, dominating opponents in almost all aspect, many still doubt that he could surpass Michael Jordan.

Yes, he may not have equal rings compared to Jordan’s but this does not mean he won’t surpass him.

Robert Horry speaks on the greatest of all time issue

TMZ interviewed Horry on his take on the GOAT issue on LeBron and Jordan, and it is shown in the video below

.

Robert Horry believes that LeBron does not need more rings to surpass Michael Jordan.

He also believes that the 6-0 Finals record of Jordan compared to 3-5 Finals record of LeBron don’t mean anything and that is why we call it a team sport.

Robert Horry’s comment must be taken to account for he is one of the few players that have more rings compared to Jordan. Horry has 3 rings with the Los Angeles Lakers, 2 rings with San Antonio Spurs and 2 with the Houston Rockets.

To put it simply, you can’t compare LeBron and Jordan in the GOAT issue because they did not play in the same era.

Next season will be the 15th season for LeBron, and the King shows no sign of slowing down. He may still a player for eight or more years and that means James is still in his journey chasing rings. And with the added firepower the Cavaliers could come up for the next season, who knows how many more rings can LeBron bring to Cleveland.
